SAN ANTONIO – A meeting held Thursday night served to inform Oak Hollow Mobile Home Park residents about the city help available them after 12 families on Monday were evicted from their homes by the city, which cited deplorable conditions and health concerns.

The owner of the park was also given a warning to comply with health standards within seven days. The city took action after it found three failing septic tanks and raw sewage in people’s yards.

“We have someone who wants to operate a mobile home park in the city of San Antonio that has no regard for the health of the residents in his community, and I consider that a huge problem,” said Ron Nirenberg, District 8 city councilman.

The owner of the Oak Hollow Mobile Home Park has until Monday to comply with health standards. If the standards aren’t met, Nirenberg said the city will be available to help the residents relocate. He said he will be with them every step of the way.
